Ever since I watched the 2016 summer olympics, I've been devoted to playing volleyball. The peace of mind and freedom it brings along with the exhileration of the game is uncomparable to any other sport. I started playing club volleyball in 6th grade an I haven't looked back. Since 7th grade, I've been team captain of my team and have led us to multiple top 5 and top 3 finishes in national and international tournaments. I've also been a part of varsity volleyball all years of high school and finished 5th in state my freshman year. Volleyball is incredible because it forces you to trust your teammates, a quality that lends itself to patience and forgiveness in the real world.
